Galileo-enabled devices

With the declaration of Initial Services Galileo is moving from a global satellite navigation system in testing, to a live, operational service.

For the first time, European satellites are providing users with global positioning, navigation and timing information. In the lead up to Galileo Initial Services, many forward-looking companies have created Galileo-enabled receivers, chipsets and modules – many of which are already available on the market.

Today, 17 companies, representing more than 95% of the global satellite navigation supply market, produce Galileo-ready chips. These companies include:

  • Key chipset manufacturers like u-blox, Broadcom, Mediatek and Intel.
  • STM, a leading European chipset manufacturer in the automotive sector, has announced Galileo-ready “Teseo” chips for vehicle telematics and navigation systems.
  • Qualcomm, the market leader for smartphone chips such as Snapdragon, has already built Galileo into its devices, meaning that many smartphones are Galileo-ready



    In the consumer market:

    • The first European-designed Galileo smartphone by Spanish technology company BQ is already on the market.
    • By 2018, Galileo will be found in every new type-approved vehicle sold in Europe, thereby enabling the eCall emergency response system.
